    Long renowned as one of the smartest writers on the loose, David Foster Wallace reveals himself in Consider the Lobster to be also one of the funniest. In this program, he ranges far and farther in his search for the original, the curious, or the merely mystifying. He discovers the World's Largest Lobster Cooker at the Maine Lobster Festival and confronts the inevitable question just beyond the butter-or-cocktail-sauce quandary.

    Story

    So well written and thought provoking. I love all his books, but this one is even more enjoyable because DFW narrates it!

  • Rise to Rebellion: A Novel of the American Revolution

    Story

    In 1770, the fuse of revolution is lit by a fateful command - "Fire!" - as England's peace keeping mission ignites into the Boston Massacre. The senseless killing of civilians leads to a tumultuous trial in which lawyer John Adams must defend the very enemy who has assaulted and abused the laws he holds sacred. Shaara's most impressive achievement yet, Rise to Rebellion reveals with new immediacy how a scattered group of colonies became the United States of America.

    Michael says: "Great book hurt greatly as abridged"

    Even though this is the abridged version , it does a good job of following the the book.

    The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history—how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices are not appeased....

    Story

    The rural town of Stockton, New York, is famous for nothing: No one was born there, no one died there, nothing of any historical import at all has ever happened there, which is why Solomon Kugel, like other urbanites fleeing their pasts and histories, decided to move his wife and young son there. To begin again. To start anew. But it isn't quite working out that way.

    Tan A. Summers says: "Darkly humorous and a little disturbing"
    "Classic Shalom Auslander!!"

    Story

    Creative, funny in a dry, and at times, even sardonic style that is so like Auslander. I enjoyed this book, but not quite as much as Foreskin's Lament.
